International Relations (Global Security and Development)

This course focuses on understanding how global security and development are interconnected in our interdependent world. It also focuses on discovering how and why underlying issues such as poverty, environmental degradation, societal inequities and politics create the international framework in which security conflicts emerge. Students will gain a sophisticated understanding of the dynamics that drive global politics, and the ability to use this knowledge in fields as diverse as diplomacy, journalism, finance, industry, public relations and risk analysis.
